I bought these cherries because they were
1) 2.5 times cheaper than local store's cherries sold in small quantities
2) Perfect Amazon.com reviews

Everyone who has tried these cherries loved them. They're perfect.

PRICE CAUTION
-------------
I have seen the price double for these cherries and then drop down again. My target price is in the lower $20s, and with the subscribe and save option you can get them below $20.

My first order of cherries was perfection. So moist and flavorful. Just delightful. I hurried and ordered a second shipment. I was so disappointed! The cherries are coated with a thin film of oil to keep them moist. Well, this time the oil was rancid. Yuck! So bad tasting. I really was surprised, since the first order had been perfect.

I contacted Amazon and they are sending a replacement right out, no charge. So, we will see how this next box will be.

I so hope it will be ok, since I really do love the cherries and plan to keep them on subscription to come at regular intervals.

Did anyone else have this happen to them?

I'm so sad about the box of wasted cherries.
********************************************
UPDATE: Happy to report that Amazon quickly sent a replacement box and it was perfect. So, I am happy with the cherries and will continue to order with confidence that they will replace any defective product. Thanks Amazon!

These are very, very good. I love these for a snack and they take care of a sweet craving too. Not too awful sugary sweet, just sweet and tart enough! I tried a handful in my oatmeal with some vanilla creamer this mornining for a treat and it was so good with those sweet, tart cherries. They are great to snack on and add to muffins and in baking. A great buy in bulk, compared to what I find in our local supermarkets which are very pricey! These are nice sized and fresh too! They would be great in trail mix. My husband likes them as a snack in his lunch too! Thumbs up!!!

Who would know that dried cherries can vary so much in quality? These cherries are exquisite. They are sweet yet tart, soft yet firm, and have fantastic cherry taste. I bought the 4lb box. You can pour them into a large jar and keep them in your kitchen. Note that these are much better than another brand of dried cherries sold here. All the positive reviews are perfectly deserved.

This was my first time ordering these cherries.
My husband has gout, so I thought this might be a good snack to help him ward off attacks.
(Cherries are known gout helpers.)

I wasn't thrilled with the price, but when it got down to a more reasonable cost (under $25), I
ordered one to try. I was not sure I really wanted to, with all the mixed reviews of some orders
being moist and great and some being nasty and dry.

The box we got arrived quickly and in good shape.
I'll post photos later, but wanted to get the review going.
I must say that I had a much bigger box in the picture in my head.
Yes, you get this box, but it is SMALL! I know they list the weight, but it was a little
hard for me to visualize four lbs of dried cherries. I'm probably not the only one.

Upon opening the box, all the cherries are in one sealed blue bag. I guess the blue
color helps with keeping the condition of the fruit from deteriorating.
I cut it open very carefully, and decided to bag them up in snack-size zipper bags.
(I was originally going to use our vacuum sealer to make smaller bags, but the quantity
was less than I had visualized. Zip top snack size worked great. I used a spoon to fill them
to not touch any of the other cherries.

Then came the big mistake - I ate a pinch of them.
I say mistake, because my husband is going to have to be quick to get some!
These were a little more tart than I thought they'd be, but they are delicious.
The bag we got had reasonable-sized cherries, around a fat raisin size. They were
very moist. As I let some sit in my mouth, they seemed to plump even more. Upon
chewing, they released a wonderful flavor that made my mouth water a little bit.

The quality of the cherries from this company used to be very high, but they appear to be using cherries from another location now. The cherries used to be plump and sweet. Now they are dried out and almost tasteless. Think twice about this purchase if you have purchased cherries from this company in the past. They are not the same cherries that you know and love...

If you're looking for sweet, candy-like dried cherries you'll like these. If you want tart, dried cherries look elsewhere.

My review of Traverse Bay Fruit Co's dried cherries is going to be almost identical to Robert J. Kiep's, which was written on 7/17/12.

The cherries I ordered last year were plump, sweet, and delicious. They came out of the package looking and tasting *perfect*, and remained perfectly wonderful to the very last one. Last week I placed a new order for the cherries and what I got was something that might as well have been little bits of dried cardboard. So I thought, "Hmm, maybe I got a bad batch, let's call for a replacement." Amazon, as always, was great about sending a replacement right away. But guess what? I got the same tasteless, nearly colorless dried bits of cardboard again, which leads me to believe that Traverse Bay is doing something vastly different with their cherries now - or obtaining them from an altogether different source.

Don't even consider purchasing these for the asking price. It would be highway robbery. I wouldn't spend $5 on the two boxes I received in the mail this week. I think I will try Costco's dried cherries as I've read good things about them. Bummer about Traverse Bay. I'm disappointed. I love to bake with dried cherries, and to snack on them, too. On a positive note, the Amazon rep was kind enough to immediately refund my money, and to let me know that he'd look into the matter so that others here are not disappointed in a similar fashion.
